To meet patient demand, the modern dental and orthodontic practice must offer an affordable and reliable treatment with clear aligners. An increasing number of adults choose this treatment method to improve their tooth positioning and achieve a straighter smile. Even younger patients, in cases of mild crowding or malocclusion, are selecting clear aligners instead of regular braces.
In addition to aesthetic improvements, dentists are recognising the advantages of using aligners as part of a larger treatment plan. For example, aligners can be used to create space for implants, or used pre-restoratively before the application of veneers. Another advantage is that correctly aligned teeth have improved function and are easier to clean.

The upper and lower front teeth extend outward so they don’t touch, preventing normal functioning of front teeth and molars.
